Paul Smith x 1882 Ltd.
A new series of one-off vases produced by ceramics brand 1882 Ltd. blends the craft of Stoke-on-Trent with the creativity of Paul Smith.
The initial release of the Stack series includes twenty-two unique vases handmade in Stoke-on-Trent by highly skilled industrial craftspeople. This timely celebration of British craft and creativity will be debuted on April 9th at Paul Smith Milan during Salone del Mobile – the world’s largest design fair.
Even if you’ve never made the journey to Stoke-on-Trent there’s a good chance that you will recognise the names Wedgwood, Royal Doulton and Minton. As the home of UK ceramics since the 17th century, the city known as “The Potteries” has been the beating heart of the industry that exported British ceramics to the world.
Today, brands like 1882 Ltd. are spearheading the next generation of Stoke-on-Trent ceramics, keeping the craft alive while injecting a much needed sense of modernity at a time when economic hardship and political upheaval has been keenly felt.
And so, the Stack series was born.
There are twenty-two Stack vases available to purchase, with sizes ranging from 15cm – 45cm. Prices begin at £1,600.
The Stack series by Paul Smith + 1882 Ltd. will be on display at the following Paul Smith shops:
Paul Smith Milan
Salone del Mobile
Paul Smith No. 9 Albemarle Street
London Craft Week
Paul Smith Greene Street
ICFF / NYC x Design
